Church Street Elementary School Home
The next Hamden School-Based Farmer’s Market will be open on Monday, FEBRUARY 24. CT Food Bank, Hamden Public Schools and the Family Resource Center are working together to distribute assorted foods to ALL HPS students and families. Please bring reusable bags with you.
Even though the Farmer's Market will be at Dunbar Hill School (315 Lane Street in Hamden), the food is available for all Hamden families. The mobile food truck will be in the back parking lot filled with assorted healthy foods for all of Hamden Public School students and their families. The food will be distributed for one hour, from 3:30pm-4:30pm. No I.D. is needed, and all food is free, participants will just need to bring a bag, line up, and receive their produce. Please see the flyer with all the dates. (English/Spanish)
Anyone who wishes to volunteer can contact Hector Velazquez, 203-407-2020 ext. 9.
We are happy to report that we now have four of our schools with restored Internet: Hamden High School, Hamden Middle School, Wintergreen School (which contains Alice Peck Learning Center and HCLC) and Church Street School. We hope to have the remaining elementary schools connected in the next two weeks.
This has been a long process, but our Network will be stronger than ever as a result. We are deeply appreciative of the patience of our parents, students and staff, who have now learned a new skill: How to live without much technology. :-)
At Church Street School 12:30pm-2:00pm
On Tuesday, February 4, Superintendent of Schools Jody Goeler presented his proposed budget for the 2020-21 school year. View Superintendent Goeler's presentation and the 2020 HPS Superintendent's Proposed Budget Object Code Detail
The Board Of Education will now review and discuss the details of the proposed budget, make changes if desired and approve a budget to give to Mayor Leng. The final step is for Mayor Leng to present his town-wide budget (including his allocation for Education) to the Legislative Council for their review, discussion, adjustments and ultimately, approval.
Many of you have been waiting patiently for Hamden to deploy the FirstView Tracking app, which allows parents to virtually see where their children's bus is in real-time.
Unfortunately, the malware attack to the district's technology has delayed our launch of the FirstView app. We will notify parents when we are ready to operationalize this valuable tool.
